Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s much-awaited film Jab Harry Met Sejal, which released on August 4 has shown a dip in its second-day box office performance. The film, which had an opening of Rs 15.25 crores, has managed to mint only Rs 15 crores on Saturday, which makes its total collection Rs 30. 25 crores.

While the film opened with a figure of Rs 15.25 crores, it is still lesser than the opening day collection of Shah Rukh’s last release, Raees ( Rs 20.42 crore). According to Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the Imtiaz Ali film is the biggest openers of 2017 along with popular films like SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion, Salman Khan’s Tubelight, Shah Rukh Khan’s earlier release Raees and Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2.

The film also released amidst the holiday of Rakshabandhan, which falls on Monday. Hence along with the advantage of having holidays on the weekend, the film might also show an upward trend on Monday.

Jab Harry Met Sejal has not opened to great reviews, however, and viewers have had mixed reactions to the film. An indianexpress.com audience reaction report said that most people enjoyed the first half of the film but couldn’t enjoy the second half of it. This film marked Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s first collaboration with director Imtiaz Ali who is known for telling unique love stories where travel plays a major role.

 

Jab Harry Met Sejal also marks Anushka Sharma’s second film this year after Phillauri which was produced by her. The film had done decently at the box office.

 

Jab Harry Met Sejal also saw Shah Rukh Khan playing the romantic hero once again. Throughout 2016, we had seen him as a psychologist, a VFX-ed 19-year-old Delhi boy and earlier in 2017 as a gangster.

    I have not seen the film yet, planing to see it in coming few days , am sure I will like it,or even love it. It is a love story and srk and anushka are looking great together, presented by imtiaz ali, it is a great great combination, how can one miss it. It is a must watch. And a biggest missed opportunity for someone who is going to miss it, 'cause there is no one like srk , when it comes to romance and drama. People who talk about young actors, they still have along way to reach, and match up to his act , and his class. Still they won't be able to be like him. He is the one and only Srk.

      He surely needs to think abt the movies he wants to make.Needs to work in films like Dear zindagi, or even Raees is Ok. Choose better script and directors. But no romantic roles. Keep it for the young actors.

          but young actors won't act like him even at this age. if you do not see the age # which is tag with him and bother people like you, will have different option. /my 17 years old son went with me to see how bad he is looking in this film but came back saying 'it as the best movie and SRK performance was amazing so mature,he did not play as an young man in this film at all

          It is one of the most boring movie I have ever watched.It is clear from Movie Analyst review that all are like "paid media". It is the first movie in which I slept half of the time.Director Imtiyaz Ali should come out this supers ious belief that just adding "Jab" will make the movie hit. I am surprised how Actor like Shahrukh khan agreed to work in khichri of "Jab we met" and "dil Chahta hai". Save money for tomatoes and onion.Avoid this movie at all cost.

            (According to Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh, it is one of the biggest openers of 2017 along with popular films like SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion, Salman Khan’s Tubelight, Shah Rukh Khan’s earlier release Raees and Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2. The film had an opening of Rs 15.25 crores, which is lesser than the opening day collection made by Raees ( Rs 20.42 crore). However, it is expected to earn more in the coming days...) What a fake article...SRK films are not making business for the last 6 years and media fooling the common man and Taran Adarsh thinks that he only knows the calculation and rest are s...15 crore for SRK movie is ten years back story then...now a days even newcomers movies earn 10-15 crore...write the truth and bring honesty in journalism irrespective of stream, celebrities, ministers, sportsmen or a cop...
